Report: Jansen signed for only vet minimum

Saturday, May 30, 2009

Nick Cotsonika at reports today that the Lions signed OT Jon Jansen only for the minimum veteran's salary of $850,000 -- which makes me like the signing even better. The Lions won't lose much even if it doesn't work out. And even if Jansen is only playing a George Foster-type depth role, I've got to believe he's still got enough left in the tank for that. The man's tenacity is off-the-charts. This can't help but be an upgrade to the O-line corps of last year.
